This is a very good mezcal to me. Had an abundance of smokiness with some other flavors in the background. Pleasant

Earthy rich flavors with a hint of the surrounding country side vegetation. Served at 36 degrees with an orange wedge and a bite of chocolate for guests. All 7 people loved this supper licquid heaven. Well worth the dollars!

Call me a philistine if you will, but honestly the first thing that came to mind was burning bicycle tires. No idea as to the attraction. Also dislike peaty scotches, so there you go.

Iain,
Nose : Model glue at first but then opens to a "smoky" sweet campfire roasted banana with a sweet agave finish. Lots of flavour! Taste: Rich papaya, banana, vegetal with a hint of roasting chili peppers Really enjoyed it.
 
Mike
Mike,
One of the better, smokier mezcals I've tried.
 
Steven
Steven,
Good mild flavor. Not as sharp or as smoky as the others
 
James
James,
The Peat and Smoke really hit you, not in a smooth way. Then Pepper and Beer/Hops dry out your mouth. Got very little of a sweetness or fruit in tasting.
